Each year, the Ohio River Valley American Red Cross conducts its’ Red, White & YOUth school membership group that includes both Junior & Senior class students who desire to assist in fundraising for the Red Cross. At the end of the year, the school members who raise the most ‘points’ (which are counted by blood units collected at drives, dollar fundraisers, comfort kit collection and volunteering at events) is rewarded a free luncheon.
This year, the winning school was Notre Dame High School! There were 11 members including: Anthony Bazler, Jayla Bowling, Ragen Kayser, Jonathan Major, William Mays, Santiago Mondragon, Megha Patel, Vincent Randaisi, Anthony Rodriguez, Nathaniel Slone & Charles Smith.
The free luncheon for the Notre Dame Red, White & YOUth members was donated by Buffalo Wild Wings and held on May 5th. The Ohio River Valley American Red Cross would like to thank the Notre Dame students and their advisor, JoEllen Mays for all of their hard work and fundraising efforts this year!
If you would like your school to participate in the 2015-2016 year, please contact the Ohio River Valley ARC office at 740-354-3293.
All proceeds help support local disaster prevention, preparation and relief, the lifesaving training of first aid, CPR/AED classes, collection and testing of blood and blood products, support to military members serving around the globe, the transportation program, and international programs provided by the American Red Cross.
